You can either use a service like this:
or, if you have a Sprint phone with web access, you can create your own
GCD file for the picture, eg:

[paul at www old]$ cat picture.gcd

Content-Type: image/jpeg
Content-Name: imagename
Content-Version: 2.0
Content-Vendor: choose-your-own-name-here
Content-URL: http://your.host.com/path/to/your/image.jpg
Content-Size: 3333

(where Content-Size is the number of bytes in your jpg), then navigate to
where the picture.gcd file is served.  The phone will complain about "not
being a verified Sprint partner" or whatever, but if you trust yourself,
go ahead.
